Photography Styling Challenge- Light

What a disastrous month this has been! Apart from studying, driving baby A to daycare and cooking (badly at that) for basic survival, I have been up to absolutely nothing! Throw in a couple of weeks of being totally sick (yes, all of us!) and I was ready to call it quits and run back crying to Amma. Thankfully, that has passed but unfortunately, I had to give up that one thing which has been…

Although I am supposed to be reveling in the joy of spring break, I am stuck at home, working on yet another paper. This means that little A is back at daycare, something I was looking forward to avoid for a weak at least. I completely miss…

Photography Styling Challenge- Fashion

fashion4I thought I was setting myself up for failure with this month’s styling challenge topic, Fashion. Although I am not all the way up there with couture and all the trend there is to keep up with, I can claim one thing with a clear conscience- I am not all that oblivious either. But styling for a full post that is going to revolve around that seven-lettered word intimidated me. I am not lying when I…

My Experiments with Brussels

My Experiments with Brussels

brussel salad3There comes a day in every food blogger’s life when they make the most perfect batch of roasted vegetables. Food angels will sing, you will shower in a million buckets of conceit and act like you just won the James Beard. Never happened to you? Is it just me? Well, alright then, let me go on. I made the most beautiful batch of Brussels yesterday and immediately let my smugness get ahead of me.
